Where are you?

The B-450 is a British built tractor made from 1958 to1970.

The Roadless AWD option is quite rare.

Engine parts (BD-264 engine) are available in Great Britain

I have a list of places, in Britain, that carry parts for older British built Internationals.

Regards from Michael in Australia (send me a PM if you require my list) B)

Roadless is the name of the company who did the AWD conversion, did a lot of interesting things like that.

The Roadless option was only available on the McCormick International (standard) B-450 which was not imported into the US. Parts would be very hard to come by. Only the Farmall B-450 was imported into the USA and it only in certain areas of the South and Texas. The Roadless will not work on a Farmall B-450.
